Closing the library any time outside normal operating hours is a decision we do not take lightly. We always keep in mind the impact that closing has on daily users, such as children who come after school and stay until their parents get home from work, people in business for themselves who need our WiFi and printers, and many residents who have no place else to go during the day.
Of course, the safety of our staff and patrons is of utmost importance. In making the determination to close or not we consider many factors: weather forecasts, alerts from local officials asking for non-essential traffic to stay off the roads, the timing of the expected event (snow removal while its being driven and parked on is especially difficult), personal reports from staff on location, as well as internal library considerations such as any major programs or activities planned for that day.
Emergency closings are posted on website's homepage as well as social media as soon as possible to alert community of the library's closing.
Visit the Emergency Closing Center for unscheduled library closings.
